MS Business Analytics Student

Designed with your goals in mind.

Simon’s MS in Business Analytics curriculum was carefully designed to ensure that every student graduates with a strong foundation in analytics and a comprehensive business education. Our curriculum covers statistics, analytics, and core business areas so that you can build a solid platform for a successful career and lifetime of learning.



Choosing between internship and non-internship tracks.

Full-Time MS in Business Analytics students can choose between internship and non-internship tracks to accommodate their goals. The non-internship track has a shorter timeline, but the benefits of the internship track are many, including a wealth of valuable real-world experience that can prepare you for career success and help differentiate you from other candidates during your job search. A majority of our students choose this path for the hands-on experience and career preparation it provides.

Students are encouraged to consider the value that internships offer. Hands-on experience in the workplace is a great way to gain a competitive edge. While valuable, an internship is not required and it is important to note that we can’t guarantee placement. Talk with the Admissions Office about which track is right for you, and get more information on the Full-Time MS in Business Analytics program in our course catalog.
